This short, pointless cartoon is my first flash project using characters from my "Mortasheen" world, a realm of grotesque creatures I illustrate and develop for fun. It was originally intended for various game projects, but I never learned how to make my own. You can follow a link at the end to see all of its current monsters; over 320 I've drawn in pencil over the past few years. I'm sure you have noticed by now that drawing monsters is practically all I ever do, and nearly all of my Flash work is just another vehicle for that. I've been doing it since I was a toddler. I probably come up with a dozen creatures a day, and just wish I had the energy to draw them all.

I know this is just some dumb cartoon gags and not much of a plot or ending, but I had to make SOMETHING involving these guys. I also know the tiny eyeball guy bears striking similarity to a character from Gegege no Kitarou (one of the only anime series I respect) which I suppose is about 50% homage and 50% the simple fact that there's no easier way to draw a tiny eyeball guy.

If anybody likes this, I implore you to comment on my other Flash submissions as well. A few of them went largely unnoticed compared to some of my other submissions, and that includes a few I put my greatest time and effort into.

If you DIDN'T like this...you should check out my other stuff anyway, because it varies wildly in tone, pacing and genre. It's still all just a bunch of damn monsters, but some of it is funny, some of it is creepy, some of it I kinda hate myself, and some of it I'm genuinely proud of.



I love your creatures! I bookmarked your webpage and joined your forum too.
hmm, what's up with the name Mortasheen? it isn't very appealing; kinda makes me think about Mortal Sin or something. name doesn't fit in with the awesome creatures.

It's the name of a disease from mythology, and in this world it's the name of a city that the monsters primarily inhabit :)

Amazing Creature Design

It's safe to say that Wojcik has a rabid imagination coupled with a gift for animation. Although there was no story, this was a real gift for the eyes. The entire piece was a whimsical but hellish romp through the mind of this unique artist. A fine animated short that depicts what might come about if Clive Barker and Tim Burton joined forces!

A tear was brought to my eye as I watched your art project run rampent and unteathered on my moniter...
Long have I viewed your creations on the paper where you show them off on your sight, to see them in this exquisite animation brought feelings to me that could never be explained in any amount of time. The shadeing, tweening, animation, sound quality, sheer amount of sound effects, and effects used were to wonderfully insane to be described in any human tounge.
You are the greatest flash author, NIEGH! You are the greatest bieng to ever exist!!!
Your site, comics, and movies are inspireational in every way, youve taught me so much I never knew I wanted to know.
